Neil Pearson Rare Books, run by actor Neil Pearson, has obtained Rickman’s archive of scripts, letters and photographs. Among the collection is a wealth of personal letters from the likes of Radcliffe, Nicole Kidman and playwright David Hare.
Radcliffe wrote to praise Rickman’s performance in an unknown play.
Hare got in touch to compliment Rickman on his role in Private Lives, which he starred in alongside Lindsay Duncan in 2001, writing, “Your Elyot is wonderful” and signing off with, “Love & admiration”.
Rickman’s archive will be on sale this spring, and also includes his annotated scripts, private photographs, props, awards and even personal diaries. Visit the Neil Pearson Rare Books website for more information.
